Do you spend a lot of time feeling guilty? I did, as a result of being abused as a child. I grew up believing something was wrong with me and that everything was my fault. And when you develop that kind of thinking during your childhood, it can torment you for a long time.
Guilt traps us and keeps us in the same place; much like a treadmill that keeps us going, but accomplishes nothing. Guilt is a trap that presses us down into our problems rather than lifting us out of them. And as long as we feel guilty about what we do wrong, we remain in that guilt and will not grow spiritually.
All of us make mistakes, and God knows that! No one can be perfect while in a fleshly body, but we can and must continue to grow spiritually regardless of where we are in our relationship with Christ. But in order to grow spiritually, we must first learn who we are in Christ. more >>

St. Louis-based rapper and Christian activist Thi'sl addresses racial tensions in his latest album, Heavy is the Head, in which he criticizes Christians for turning their backs on the Great Commission by failing to share the Gospel with those who live in their own backyards — inner city youth.
Ignoring the plight of those living in the nation's inner cities only makes them more susceptible to being influenced by groups such as the Nation of Islam and New Black Panthers who claim that Christianity is the "white man's religion," Thi'sl said during an interview with The Christian Post.
"Everything in this world is either furthering the Gospel or trying to stop it," he continued, expressing his frustration over the Church's reaction to racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, and Staten Island, New York, in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases. more >>
Many of us may not remember our first day of school, but we all remember the feeling of starting off a new school year. The feeling of getting our school supplies, meeting the teacher, making new friends. But nothing was better than seeing your parents at the end of the day. This adorable little girl gets a surprise visit and is overjoyed!
We tend to forget how much we miss our parents until we see them again. This little girl is checking out her first classroom when all of a sudden her daddy shows up, and she runs to the door. Regardless of what we're doing when we see our parents we suddenly realize how much we've missed them. Some children may like to hide the fact that they're excited, but not this little one. She lets everyone in the class, including the teacher, know that her best friend is at the door. We should all get this excited to see our parents — it would really make them SMILE!

NEW YORK — Christians seeking family-friendly entertainment for their children will be able to do so without commercial interruption in the comfort of their living rooms with the new streaming service, Dove channel.
The platform functions much like Netflix, except it solely focuses on streaming faith-based and family friendly content. It will also give lesser-known filmmakers an outlet to release their movies and shows.
Cinedigm, a leading content distributor in the U.S., has partnered with The Dove Foundation, an organization which has specialized in rating movies for family friendliness for over 25 years, to launch the new service. more >>
